[quote=Argh]I really dont think making out by itself is a sin. A temptation…yeah probly, I guess it depends on circumstances. If you know you’re strong in your convictions (and your partner is too), I’d say it’s harmless. If not, l’d say ease up on it.
My girlfriend and I do so and often horizontally, I’m not going to deny that, but nothing is going to happen and we both accept and know it.
As human beings we crave physical contact. When we’re touched, especially by someone we care about, hormones are released and we feel good. It’s just part of that little mechanism we were given to make sure we’d find a mate. Physical contact and sexual arousal are linked, but the latter can be controlled in the event of the former.
You know what’s better than making out? IMHO, backrubs (shirts on you perverts) and just lying on a couch together, under a blanket and watching a movie.
when I close my eyes, all I hear is “Unstoppable!”
See, here’s the thing. Lust when making out is pretty much a given and that’s why it’s a sin. That passion you feel is lust when it is outside of marriage. You can’t make out without getting all hot and bothered, especially horizontally. Hips start to move around and stuff and that’s no good. Stick to watching movies on the couch.
